Anti-Human TPO Rabbit IgG Antibody

Thrombopoietin is a glycoprotein hormone encoded by the THPO gene in humans. It is required for the maturation and proliferation of megakaryocytes in bone marrow, as well as for thrombopoiesis. It is also known as megakaryocyte growth and development factor (MGDF), megakaryocyte colony-stimulating factor (MKCSF), megakaryocyte stimulating factor, myeloproliferative leukemia virus oncogene ligand, ML, TPO, MPLLG, THCYT1, C-mpl ligand, and MPL ligand. Thrombopoietin is produced mainly in the liver and kidney. Due to its role in megakaryocyte differentiation, thrombopoietin has been proposed as the major physiological regulator of circulating platelets. Mutations in the THPO gene are linked to development of thrombocythemia, a myeloproliferative disorder characterized by overproduction of platelets.

This product is an affinity-purified IgG antibody that recognizes human thrombopoietin protein. The antibody was raised in rabbit using a synthetic peptide and can be used for Western blot (WB) detection or immunohistochemical (IHC) detection of human thrombopoietin protein.
